Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Leeds College of Art,

I am writing to ask about library fines during the academic year 2015/2016. For the time period starting from the first day of term, covering the next 364 days (e.g. one full year), please provide:

1. The total amount of money the library received from the payment of overdue items. Exclude costs of replacing lost books - this request solely relates to the cost of books that are returned later than their due date.

2. Information about where this money then goes (is it absorbed into a specific library budget for example? if so what one?)

3. If possible, from the figure provided in 1, break this down by

a) category of user paying fine (e.g. undergraduate, postgraduate, staff)
b) country of origin of user paying fine (e.g. France, Italy, US). If only broader categories are possible e.g. "EU", "non-EU" then please provide this instead.

Many thanks, and do let me know if you require any further clarification.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Forks

Fiona Bagchi, Leeds College of Art

Dear Mr Forks
 
I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request, dated 6
February 2017 concerning library fines. I can confirm that the College
holds the following information, which has been provided by the College's
librarian:
 
1.   The total sum received from library fines in 2015/16 was £2,565.36;
2.   The total sum received from library fines went back into the general
library budget.
 
The College librarian has confirmed that the College does not hold the
information in your third question i.e. it does not hold information on
the category of user fined or their country of origin.
 
I hope that this provides the information that you require but, if you are
dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask
for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted
within two months of the date of receipt of this response and should be
addressed to: the Principal, Leeds College of Art, Blenheim Walk, Leeds,
LS2 9AQ.
 
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.
 
Yours sincerely
 
Fiona Bagchi
Clerk to the Board of Governors
